Faster Installation with Borer PoE
Nearly all access systems need a mains power outlet at every door. Fitting a mains spur for a new build generally costs from £60, while retrofits can often costs more than £300. Most access control systems require cabinets to house power supplies and electronic circuit boards. These are often mounted above the door or in the ceiling void.
A Borer FUSION installation needs less hardware. A typical installation consists of a door card access reader, lock manager and electric lock all fitted at door handle height. The card access reader head is normally surface mounted on the access side of the door. The lock manager, which is a miniature circuit board is often mounted, together with the Push-To-Exit switch, onto a standard electrical wall socket.
FUSION needs less equipment to be installed and has fewer cables to terminate. You don't need mains power outlets at every door so you don't need a qualified electrician. As all equipment is mounted at door handle height, it can be safety installed without using ladders thereby eliminating the dangers and paperwork associated with working at heights.
Most access control systems use traditional cable architecture to connect a chain of access doors to a PC or the LAN via an RS485 to Ethernet converted. The data cable is run from door to door in a daisy chain style. In contrast, FUSION uses standard CAT5 network cable. Each door has its own cable connection to a network bridge. More cable is needed, but CAT5 cable costs a third of the price of RS485 cable.
Easier Servicing with Borer PoE
Up to 80% of service calls are resolved by simply power resetting equipment. FUSION has remote diagnostic and repair facilities built into the access control system. This enables many service tasks to be undertaken via remote control over the internet, using a secure connection. This can significantly impact on service overheads.
FUSION supports power and data delivery over CAT5 network cable. This allows the system administrator or service provider to monitor, manager and control door access readers, attendance terminals and security input panels. In this way many basic faults can be resolved without having to call out a service engineer. Consequently, minor faults can be dealt with quickly and efficiently and service support only called upon when equipment does not respond.
